Sleep well, wake up rested

Well said, we should get enough sleep, but how many hours of sleep do we really need?? Let’s start with the smallest. A baby needs on average 16 hours of sleep a day. A small child needs about 12 hours.

Young people need 9 to 10 hours of sleep. Adults should get 7 to 8 hours of sleep on average and older people often get 7 hours or less. Whether you sleep well depends on many things.

Think about alcohol use, stress, or physical discomfort.

Tastes differ

I don’t know how you experience this, but when I sleep in a hotel, the pillows always irritate me. These are almost always incredibly soft. While that -for me- is not comfortable at all.

My neck hurts and I lie in bed twisting and turning. Of course it’s the same with pillows as with comforters. Some like a thick pillow, hard, thin or soft.

And some like to snuggle up under a comforter while others prefer a thin sheet over them and prefer the windows open.

An anti-allergy pillow

Our oldest occasionally suffers from red thick eyes. I do not know where that came from, we are looking into it. Sometimes I feel it might be from his pillow.

He also needed a new pillow. Recently he got a new room and with it a new bed. I ordered anti-allergy pillow at comforter shop.

There is a lot of choice in pillows, think about material, size, firmness and even what type of sleeper you are. If you are a belly sleeper, it is better to buy another pillow than if you are a back sleeper.

How do I like this pillow

Both boys got a new room and a new bed, mattress, comforter and now for the oldest a pillow. He could not wait for the pillow to be delivered to his home. Asked me regularly if he would then no longer have red eyes and could not wait ( and that does not happen often) the day the pillow arrived to go to bed. The son says that the pillow is very comfortable, it is a nice soft pillow because of the soft cover.But the pillow also feels firm.

He reacts especially well to the anti-allergy part of the pillow. Hasn’t had red thick eyes for days, so I hope this is the solution.

Specifications of the pillow

The Dynmaic Pillow Pocket springing is a point pillow with a special pocket spring filling, so it always gives optimal support to the head and neck.

The pillow is anti-allergic. The dimensions of the pillow are 60 x 70 centimeters.

The outer cover, with luxurious blue piping, is removable and erasable. This pillow costs €24.95

Sleep well with these tips

Biggest annoyance when sleeping

Besides a good pillow, the right comforter is also very important. You have so many different choices in comforters. It is therefore very person-dependent what you like and here you should definitely think carefully before you buy one. We have a four season comforter. I find this ideal.

I should sleep well and I usually do. Yet I ’ve still got an annoyance at night. Something I can get incredibly worked up about at night and so don’t sleep well.

That annoyance is a fitted sheet or flannel that does not fit properly. We have a thick mattress topped with a topper. That sleeps super nice, but the flannel does not fit well around it.

If I pull it around the point of the mattress on one side, it comes loose again on the other side. Making up is a disaster. but it happens so regularly that the flannel ’s loose at night and I suddenly feel it slide under my legs.

Sleep well

Time for a well-fitting flannel cover. At comforter store I found a Motlon fitted sheet of the brand Damai. A flannel that is specially made to measure and will therefore always fit. Our bed is 200×220. I buy sheets of 180/200×200/220, then they let go.

As excited as my son is about his pillow, I put the flannel around my bed and it fit perfectly. I even have room left over. Making the bed is a breeze and finally I can sleep well without having to get out of bed at night to pull my sheets back into place. This flannel of 200×220 costs € 56,95

flannel and under sheet

Sleeping enough hours is not only healthy, if you have good stuff you wake up really rested and ready to go again! I am converted and must say that I really sleep better now that I no longer suffer from ‘my annoyance’. So think about what you need to sleep well and make sure you have a good mattress, pillow, sheets and comforters.
